Ca’ Emo rosso IGT delle Venezie

Raboso shortly left to dry.

“Ca’Emo” was the name of one of the historical estates of the Emo family. The wines produced here traditionally were crisp and light, with the purpose of refreshing one after a hard days work. According to this tradition our “housewine” Ca’Emo nowadays is produced with a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon e Raboso. Raboso grapes are harvested in November and shortly left to dry.
